Because i don't support the idea of 'only good scores are full orchestral', don't agree with that statement.<br><br>Yes, i love Your Highness and Steamboy, aslo really like stuff like TF (except the four) and TMNT 2. But also something like Pain & Gain, Bloodshot, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deepwater Horizon, even i consider (unpopular opinion) guilty pleasure Battleship.<br><br>Yes, i'm weird :p<br>I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.
Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.
Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.
you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.

I have been revisiting a lot of scores of the MCU leading up to Infinity War, and what I don't really understand is why they didn't used almost any of the previously established themes in this one. He even created a new theme for Captain America, when he could have used his own theme from Winter Soldier. In fact, I think Winter Soldier's theme is the only one returning. Age of Ultron, although it was a really chaotic score, at least had some continuity and was a lot of fun, but this score feels flat for the most part of it.

And I really enjoyed TWS but for me this was a step down. But I must recognize that there are some great action cues, especially in the Airport Battle, but apart from that I didn't found anything that remarkable.


mpolonest123 2018-04-25 23:43:18
For the most part I agree with you, especially in regards to continuity. Him writing a third theme for Cap makes no sense whatsoever, considering that the credits of TWS had a more traditional take on his CA theme which is basically what he ended up writing for Civil War. Same with the lack of The Falcon theme, which was even used in Ant-Man. I have a feeling this has something to do with what the Russo Bros wanted however.

As for the overall score though, I actually think it works great in context. Considering the film is a thriller, the more nuanced approach Henry took here feels very appropriate. And even though itís a short motif, I genuinely like the theme for Black Panther.


Francesco2020-09-10 01:29:39
It's because the Winter Soldier score was received negatively for being so electronic too, I think... so he went for a more traditional approach.


Medigo2020-09-10 16:11:06
Also Jackmans scores get even more synths removed for the album releases, making them sound even more watered down.

Does anyone know what the Avengers Suite sounds like? It's never leaked.

Is Henry Jackman's WS Captain America theme used at all in this score? I know the osinato pops up but I don't hear the main "Taking a Stand" at all.


Mike2017-01-25 23:22:29
No, for some reason Jackman wrote a third theme for the character in this one. :P The WS ostinato does show up in Cap's Parting Words for the credits, though.

does anyone know the cue names that appear in the "Tunnel Chase" sequence by chance?


Anonymous2017-01-23 10:18:18
umm....."Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-23 15:11:55
and before you say it
yes some of it sound a little different in the movie
but it IS the theme
the movie just edited a few parts


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-23 18:39:10
Let me rephrase...

The main cue used in the album is "Stairwell/Tunnel Chase", but the film version used in the film are these cues.

Stairwell fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" (First part)
Rooftop fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" mixed with a section of "Market Fight"
Car chase sequence - "(Unnamed sequence)" mixed with the rest of "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-24 10:01:25
I feel like the unnamed sequence IS the tunnel chase, just with some instruments removed (up until Bucky takes the bike)

because otherwise a section of the sessions track just goes unused


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-25 04:47:35
There actually is a section missing if you think about it. Right where Bucky lands to where Cap steals the car is missing. That's where it trails back, but like you said "maybe it is the tunnel sequence."


Medigo2017-01-25 17:40:25
the movie track also does some re-arranging of certain bits
reuses one part twice and edits out others (about 20 seconds worth)
so that unnamed sequence must have been inserted after to fill the timegap
its a mess really

The magic of Henry Jackman's music still kicks butt. The Captain America: Civil War complete score is another certified blockbuster film soundtrack. I love it!

Medigo reply Replies: 0 || 2017-01-01 21:06:11
yup

and with the way the score really sounds (not the orchestral revised album version)
I'd say its worth listening too

### EDITED ####
I found this on You Tube by complete accident. It's part of Winter Soldier's Recording Sessions. I don't know if its a demo for the film or if its Jackman's Proof-Of-Concept for The First Avenger. Does anyone know what it's called?


Mike2016-10-29 21:36:05
This is the end of the credits for the film. Listen to the last 2 minutes of the end credits, and bam, there it is. Shame the whole score didn't follow this mold.


Joseph Solano2016-11-07 23:43:07
@Mike Ooh... ok. I actually didn't mind the style of the score, but I would have loved more reliance on this style than the more modern style.

I dunno about this "Avengers Suite" demo...

sounds like it's just a mashup of the main themes, or a demo of the Civil War track or something...

Anyway, most of this music is already on the OST, so I dont see what the big deal is.


Medigo2016-10-28 13:32:03
I wouldnt call 50 %
'most of the music'

also are you talking about the suit up above?

because thats clearly not the suite from the sessions


Meta2016-10-29 03:16:55
Based on what I heard in the film, I'd say the OST captures pretty much everything you need to hear from this score....

Unless of course you're dying for that piece where Cap holds the helicopter...

Otherwise I heard nothing else of note.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-26 01:49:03
I hope this complete score establishes more themes than the official soundtrack (which was my only complaint).

That "Avengers Suite" is making me wonder if Jackman was initially gonna incorporate the different franchise themes before the directors decided to go the route they did.

As much as I like this score (I really don't get some of the hate it received) even I'll admit that it should have been more faithful to the preexisting ideas.


Mike2016-10-23 20:33:07
Same...I really wanna hear it.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-24 10:21:11
I don't think it got a lot of *hate*...more like a lot of "meh". :p

I would indeed be curious to hear that Avengers Suite. Especially with the Scott Glasgow co-composing tag. He's an excellent composer who I never thought I'd see contributing to an RC score...


Mike2016-10-24 17:16:41
Yeah, I noticed that name...which is nowhere on the OST page. Do we know what he contributed throughout?
